QUEENSLANDER...Queenslander...Queenslander...The famous words Billy Moore screamed out as he walked down the tunnel to play for the Maroons could be heard again on enemy territory at the Ivory Hotel for the Cancer Council's fundraiser lunch on Friday.

Mr Moore and New South Wales legend Brett Kenny were happy to be having lunch at the Tweed River, were the pair helped raise money for the Cancer Council and were also clearly enjoying giving each other a ribbing at the same time ahead of Wednesday night's deciding Origin match.

Mr Moore wanted to make sure he knew which state he was in upon arrival, as he grew up right on the border of Queensland and New South Wales in a little town called Wallangarra, where the line between Maroon and Blue runs smack bang through the middle of town.

Mr Moore said it was important which side you stand behind.

"That state line can become a little blurred sometimes," he said.

"It's always good to know which side your on."
